Re: RC: bridle path
We have always trimmed a bridle path on our Arabs and so do everyone I
know here who has Arabs. When we showed, the bridle path was a lot
longer to show off a clean throat latch; now the style appears to have
gone the other way--- shorter path. It is a mess when you don't have
one, I agree. To me it is a matter of personal preference. Can't worry
about what others will think--- there are ALWAYS those who will find
fault with anything you do. Makes them feel superior. My favorite book
title in the whole wide world wa by Terry Cole Whittaker--- never read
the book but loved the title---" What You Think OF Me Is None Of My
Whispering Oaks Arabians, Home of TLA Halynov
I've learned that life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer it
gets to the end, the faster it goes. Smell the roses!
